Sam Sheppard Murder Case 1954 This 1997 investigative report deals with the famous murder case in which a 30-year-old Cleveland, Ohio doctor, Sam Sheppard, was convicted of murdering his 31-year-old wife, Marilyn, on the Fourth of July weekend in 1954. Marilyn was bludgeoned to death in her bed while her husband was supposedly napping in front of the TV one floor below. Sheppard claimed he was roused by shouts coming from the upstairs bedroom and was twice knocked out by a bushy-haired intruder. Sheppard was quickly accused by the media. He was found guilty by a jury, served a decade in prison, and then had his conviction overturned in a new trial in 1966. He died a broken man in 1970. Was Sam Sheppard guilty? Suffice to say his original conviction has been hotly debated by crime buffs ever since.

It's sad when innocent people are railroaded by prosecutors who forget about justice, but compete for headlines. They should be held accountable for their actions.

My opinion on this case has changed a half dozen times over the years. I'm glad I wasn't on the jury.

The one thing that can almost certainly be ruled out was that a hired killer did the job. Judging by the number of wounds on the victim, the murderer was filled with rage--indicating that the murderer knew the victim and really wanted to vent his anger.
